Editorial Reviews

Product Description

A group of teens from the wrong side of Budapest's tracks band together to make themselves rich by traveling back in time, burying a horde of mammoths under the city's streets, then returning to the present and drilling for oil. As creators of a new oil-producing nation, their scheme draws the attention of Putin (who uses the district's Russian hookers as spies), Blair and George W. Bush. In the midst of it all, star-crossed teen love is in bloom.

This outrageous and visually stunning animated satire plays like an unhinged ghetto updating of Romeo & Juliet smash-filtered through a politically-charged and politically-incorrect-kaleidoscope of clashing world views and social unrest, complete with musical numbers and a wicked soundtrack of Hungarian hip-hop.

THE DISTRICT! had its North American bow at the Toronto International Film Festival and went on to screen at 61 fests across the world, including Karlovy Vary, Rotterdam International, Philadelphia Film Festival, Fantastic Fest, Mar Del Plata, Melbourne International and Sitges, winning awards at no less than 13 of them and attaining cult adoration and critical acclaim in every spoken language. You have never seen anything like it.

Review

The Hungarian cartoon feature The District! is a last-minute shoo-in for the title of 2007's most original animated film, no small triumph in a year that also included the releases of Persepolis, Ratatouille, Beowulf and Paprika. --The New York Times

This breathtakingly crude (and very funny) Hungarian musical cartoon, with its thoroughly un-p.c. time-travel plot, has already evoked comparisons to South Park, but it also features equal doses of 8 Mile, Romeo + Juliet, and The Goonies. --New York Magazine

Startingly original... Has to be seen to be fully fathomed! --Ain't It Cool News
